Hi Mixie23!

Congrats on your wedding! Your pics were stunning! I read your review and now I'm a little anxious about my make up being done by the resort...I was wondering if I can have the contact info for your make-up artist Sara Tomargo if possible. Do you know if she does hair too?

Thanks in advance and congrants again, you were a beautiful bride!

why did they have to pull your nail off? The same thing happened to me when I was skiing and fell and when I hit a patch of ice using my hands to shield my fall. I jammed my thumb straight into the ice and my natural nail belt at a 90 degree ankle halfway down. It was the worse pain in my life (equal to the time I tripped and ripped out a toenail!) but I never had to have my nail pulled. I just trimmed the nail as close to the bend as possible (a few days later when the pain went down) and wrapped it in a TON of gauze. Anyways, happy to hear it all ended up okay.

There was another bride and her bridal party and her photographer at the salon at the same time as me making an already small space even more crowded (note to future brides at DT, perhaps leave the entourage in the room). My hair appointment was at 12pm (my wedding was at 6pm). I had a simple style, so no big deal. My maid of honors hair was supposed to be at 1pm, my mom and my fiance's daughter were at 1:30, and my grandmother at 2pm. These times were all arranged by Jennifer, their spa concierge, who I assume knows the # of staff, but seemed not to take this into consideration. Now, at 1pm I had a makeup appointment with Sol Tamargo's (of Del Sol Photography) sister Sara. I was out and back to my room in plenty of time. My MOH was scheduled for makeup at 2pm, an hour after her hair appointment. At 2:15, I sent her mom out to locate her, because I was getting a little nervous when she hadn't returned to my room for her makeup. She didn't even sit in the CHAIR until 2pm - an hour late!!! The other bride having her makeup done kept wanting it changed and redone, kept getting up to look at it in natural light, then back down in the chair for more changes, etc. Now, please understand that I totally understand you want your makeup to be perfect for your day. However the spa should have got someone else to take over (since she was clearly unhappy with the person she was supposed to work with) and fix her make up - not make my wedding party late and behind schedule! MOH finally got out of the spa at around 2:45. My mom got in the chair at 2:30, also an hour late. There was a guest of another wedding pacing around, telling my mom that she had a 2:30 appointment and essentially implying that my mom should get up and out of the chair and give her the appointment. My mom was like, uhh, well we have a wedding too, and I have been waiting an hour, so the best thing I can tell you is have a seat and wait. All of this could have been avoided if the spa had scheduled themselves either more staff, or not had so many appointments at the same time...
I am the other bride that Mixie is talking about. So, I thought I would jump in to point out that the spa definitely double-booked our parties as a warning to future DT brides. My hair and makeup appointment was at noon. The spa told me that they allotted 2 hours for my two appointments, but after reading this review, it is clear that the spa booked my stylist/makeup artist to start one of her bridesmaids at 1pm (in reality, giving me just an hour for both). This explains why they were basically giving away my chair when I got up to check out the 80s style makeup that she gave me in natural light (and why this was so confusing to me at the time).

As for the entourage, I had made manicure appointments for 4 of my friends, and can agree that it was a tight fit when they hung out after their appointments. It was probably comparable to most bridal parties who are all in there at the same time, but something to think about if you have a large bridal party for sure. This is one of the many reasons that this resort should not hold 3 weddings a day!

Beautiful pics, Mixie! I'm glad it worked out!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
